At South Florida Eye Health, your eye health and vision care are in the best of hands. We offer the most advanced care to help patients prevent, manage, and treat medical and surgical diseases of the retina, vitreous, and macula.

Retinal health

The process of converting reflecting light into images begins at the retina, a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye. Here millions of photoreceptor cells translate the incoming and focused light into full-color visual information that then heads to the brain, where it's instantly interpreted and defined.

When your eyes are healthy, this intricate process operates seamlessly. However, millions of people across the globe suffer from low vision or blindness due to retinal diseases and conditions.

Whether due to trauma, an illness, or the physiological changes associated with aging, the effects of retinal problems can be disheartening and debilitating. In addition to aging, other factors such as heredity, smoking, UV exposure, a diagnosis of high myopia, and medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure can raise your risk.

While the list of conditions affecting the retina is a long one, some of the most common ones include the following:

Some of the many retinal disorders and conditions we treat include the following:

  • Floaters: Spots in your vision that are due to shadows cast onto the retina. Floaters may be the result of age-related changes to the jelly-like substance in the eye, or the consequence of a torn retina
  • Diabetic Retinopathy: The vision loss associated with the damaging effects that high blood sugar has on the retinal blood vessels
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD): Central vision loss due to the deterioration of the small central portion of the retina
  • Retinal Detachment: Occurs when the retina lifts away from the underlying tissue due to the presence of fluid from a retinal tear
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa: A Hereditary eye disease that is characterized by the gradual degeneration of the retina.

When it comes to your eye health and vision, it's essential to be vigilant.

Some of the warning signs and symptoms of retinal conditions to look out for include the appearance of floaters or cobwebs, blurry central vision, seeing straight lines that look wavy, trouble with peripheral vision, or central vision loss.

Pay attention to any sudden or dramatic changes in your vision and contact our office immediately if any develop. Remember, early diagnosis, timely intervention, and care can go a long way in helping to prevent vision loss.
